Subject: The Patchwork Girl
This is a cute movie. There was no music at all on it when I watched.

The actor playing the Patchwork Girl is Pierre Couderc or The Marvelous Couderc. Wikipedia says he was a French acrobat, actor, screenwriter and producer and that he also appeared in His Majesty The Scarecrow of Oz.
Mr. Couderc certainly deserves credit because he does a great job of bringing Scraps to life. In the books, she is never still, always getting into trouble, but truly kind and helpful. She's all that in this movie too.
The Woozy is also very well done; he looks exactly like John R. Neill's illustrations.
Thank you for posting this movie. It is a gem.

Subject: Greatful, but...
I'm really greatful to the poster for allowing us to see this film. I've wanted to see it for a long time, so it was a thrill to finally be able to enjoy it. However, as noted, the picture quality leaves a lot to be desired. If anyone can post this wonderful movie again in a more watchable form, I'm sure there would be a lot of greatful people out there, me included.
Subject: Awful video compression artifacts
Whatever entertainment to be had from the film is demolished by the hugely artifacted video compression. The size of the file is no indicator of the quality in this instance. It looks horrible. I downloaded the .ogv.
Concerning the previous reviewer's comments about the music: I agree it's inappropriate. It consists of haphazardly-chosen NUTCRACKER excerpts for the most part, if memory serves. However, I don't think it's a synthesized orchestra. The audio compression is also bad, so that the squashing of the sound makes it flange/phase horribly, giving it an electronic edge.
Subject: Nice film
The music which has been added is both cheap, nasty and annoying, but the movie itself is a minor classic from 1914. Worth a watch, perhaps with Bach's organ music in the background instead of this synth-orchestra rubbish.
But as noted, the movie itself is VERY GOOD!
